Description Tom Kliethermes 2007-12-05 02:15:53 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

I have some images in Digikam which have very long descriptive comments. These are from the Digikam "comment" field (some places called the "caption"), and there's no size limit.  When I export them into Gallery 2, the comment goes into the "Title" field, where it is truncated.  For these albums that I know will have long comments, I'd like for the gallery2 export to set the "Description" field instead.  

Ideally, the user could select "Title or Description" for each image, but the interface would be cumbersome... setting "Title or Description" per album upload would be sufficient.

I'll attach a screenshot and a patch for this feature.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for contributing :)

The patch looks to be in a good format and with a quick glance looks to be good generally.

I'll try and review sometime very soon.

Thanks again.
